Hi People

I don't know if this is a debian issue or what, but I've just installed netmrg on my sarge box, everything seems to be going okay (I set the passwords for mysql upon install, not getting any errors about it) but when I go to try and login to the front end with the default admin details, I just get the login screen again, and it says "not logged in" at the top right.

My weblogs show it's posting to login.php, trying to get device_tree.php, and then getting error.php?action=invalid

firewall.tibus.net - - [30/May/2005152523 +0100] "POST /netmrg/login.php HTTP/1.0" 302 - "http//bazza.com/netmrg/login.php" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv1.7.8) Gecko/20050516 Firefox/1.0 (Ubuntu package 1.0.4)"

I've tried changing the password for the admin user myself from the mysql command line, but it hasn't made any difference to what happens, any hints would be appreciated.

cheers

and ... very strangely, this only happens when behind my firewall at work, it's just fine everywhere else

Is your firewall filtering HTTP POST requests for some reason?
